Ryan starting in the real tight beginning.
This is the obvious long and tall splitter chimney on the backside of the "Coup D' Etat" formation. Starts off as tight ( really tight) squeeze chimney and eventually flares into a nice width.
Long clean cracks like this perfect for practicing technique aren't very common at the lake. Get on this!
Long chimney located on backside of "Coup D'etat". Can't miss it.
Route 58 in Sven's Book.
TR, (big bro's and maybe real long slings for slinging chock stones.) Might as well solo the route for hard-man status. If you slip you aren't going far.
A shot looking at the top of The Bastard.
Reinke getting through the enjoyably wide top.

As for the FA- assume this was a CMC or Stettners trophy. No self-respecting DLFA-er would have climbed this. Well maybe with the exception of Pigs In Space now that I think about it.

If you are too large to treat the lower section as a squeeze, this feels a bit hard. Protects with a Blue big bro and slung chockstones.
